Ich Bin Ein Binliner

Okay, so we really needed to clean up Mimi Berlin’s HQ the other day. Being completely honest with you; that’s a dreadful task for us. We don’t like it, never have, never will, but we had to. By the time we were almost done, there was more than light at the end of our clean tunnel! As we opened up a a fresh new pack of trash bags by Brabantia there is was; surprise and laughter when we noticed the text ‘Ich Bin Ein Binliner’ printed on them! Just what we needed: some good old plain fun after a hard day of cleaning! ich bin ein binlinerDanke Schön Studio Aandacht for giving us domestic household pleasure!

Green Boiled Eggs

Green Boiled Eggs: In our search for “surrealistic food” we also came across things you can do to an egg. The tips and tricks we found to handle eggs are mostly made to feed a child, but with a little imagination these molds (and what have you) can be a great start for a seriously beautiful and surreal meal.

Earlier we posted a, somewhat more glamorous, recipe for Disco eggs

Adventure #24: Tosti being Independent

Adventure #24: Tosti is Independent: As we all know little Tosti has a big appetite. Most of the time he’ll just find his food in front of him, served in a collector’s bowl (shop those collector’s items). But due to an increasing workload for his parents, he has to prepare his own meals more frequently than before. And, let’s be frank, he is no spring puppy anymore, he can handle that independence just fine.tosti
At first The Diva was at a loss in the kitchen………

Autochrome Flowers

Autochrome Lumiere is an early color photography process patented in 1903 by the Lumière brothers in France. Photographers used to experiment with this technique a lot at that time, often using every day objects. This resulted in many pretty and not so slick photographic studies like the ones below. For us, at Mimi Berlin, and for you, our friends a peek at every day life of those days.. Buyah!

4th August 1934 : Woman in a light bulb. Curated by Amanda Uren (Deputy curator for retronaut.com since 2011.) “Marian Holmes knelt inside the glass of a 100,000-watt incandescent bulb to be exhibited by the Westinghouse Company at the World Fair in Chicago. She held a 60-watt bulb for comparison. The caption noted that the bulb “must be strong enough to withstand a crushing strain of 40,000 pounds.”“ (via messytimetravel)
